Their Power To Steal

The charlatans bankrupted

his checking account,

but his love was not overdrawn

 

Each check that he wrote,

each choice that he made,

trading ingots for righting a wrong

 

With credit denied

and spirit affirmed,

he continued to endorse what was real

 

Until bankers and lawyers

destroyed with one stroke,

his wishes—their power to steal

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: March, 2017)
